Baptist Health Care Foundation Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

PENSACOLA, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2022) – Throughout the month of October, Baptist Health Care Foundation, along with presenting partner Our Local Honda Dealer, will raise funds and awareness about the Foundation’s Mammogram Fund. The fund provides mammograms year-round to those in need in our communities.

The mammogram program remains vitally important as Baptist continues to serve the needs of its patients. Over the past 13 years, the Foundation’s Mammogram Fund has provided screenings to 2,645 patients. As a result of these screenings, 681 patients required additional testing, 93 required biopsies and 32 were diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Foundation is offering a chance-to-win drawing to support the Breast Cancer Awareness Month initiative. The prize drawing is valued at $1,795 and includes a $300 gift card from The Grand Marlin Pensacola Beach, a two-night stay from Oyster Bay Boutique Hotel and a David Yurman necklace from Jewelers Trade Shop. Tickets are available throughout October at one ticket for $25 or five tickets for $100. One winner will be selected at random between 4 and 5 p.m. on Nov. 1 on the Baptist Health Care Foundation Facebook page. The winner will be awarded all three items, a total value of $1,795. Participants do not need to be present to win. No purchase necessary, and prizes are not transferable.
